The natural beauty of Sri Lanka is one thing that keeps tourists drawn to the country. Surrounded by the Indian Ocean and aptly nicknamed ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka has numerous waterfalls hidden inside lush, forested tracts.
The tallest waterfall on the island, Bambarakanda Falls has a height of 263 metres. From Kalupahana, you can walk here or take a tuk-tuk. If you are visiting during the rainy season, you shouldn’t try to climb up to the top.
Located at Horton Plains National Park, Baker Falls is one of the must-see waterfalls in the country, especially if you are planning to visit the upcountry. Named after an explorer, Sir Samual Baker, Baker Falls is an invitation for nature lovers.
With a height of 25 metres, Ravana Falls is one of the major tourist attractions in Ella. The falls are also linked to the Indian Epic, Ramayana.
Another tourist attraction in the upcountry, Devon Falls is also called the veil of the vale. A delightful hike through a tea plantation, covering about a kilometre, will get you to the falls. The falls are called after the famous coffee planter, Devon. If you are looking for the best places to stay in Sri Lanka, close to Devon Falls, you’ll be able to find a few accommodation providers situated within a three-hour distance, or less, from the falls; an example would be Cinnamon Citadel Kandy, which belongs to Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts.
